The University of Denver Peace Corps Community (DU PCC) is a student group composed of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV's) and Peace Corps Masters International students (PCMI's) from across campus. Our mission is to provide an opportunity to gather and meet the 3rd Goal mission of Peace Corps through organized awareness events, volunteer work and charity opportunities around DU, Denver and the greater Colorado community.
As of 2013, DU has the largest body of RPCV's and PCMI's of any higher educational institution in the country. We realize that our unique skills, experiences and abilities gained through service are a valuable resource to be used in continuing the ideals of development, cooperation and cross-cultural understanding throughout the University and Colorado.
